"Relay I" is the first in Smeraldina-Rima's Relay Series. An artist for the A-side is chosen by the Smeraldina-Rima clan, after which the A-side artist decides upon who will get to fill the B-side. For every Relay 7" a different artist will be chosen to create the outside artwork. The A-side of "Relay I" fell to Jack Allett, the fingerpicking whirlwind formerly known as Spoono. Allett chose Kalbakken for the B-side. A great choice, Kalbakken, with its shamanistic folk, offers a great supplement to Allett's strong and droney guitar track. Drawings by Karel Wouters, graphic design by Levi Seeldraeyers. Comes in an open two-colour screenprinted sleeve by Smeraldina-Rima.
Recorded by Jack in his old place in Camberwell (UK), summer 2009. Limited to 200 copies, in a fold-open screenprinted sleeve.
